Sports headphones are prepared to combat the demands of your workouts and resist sweat, adverse weather conditions and jerks typical of sports practice.
To choose headphones for sports that suit you, you must take into account a series of characteristics but above all, let yourself be advised by our sound specialists and of course, consult our extensive catalogue.
Running is one of the most frequent sports practices and therefore, it is interesting to take with us running headphones that meet certain requirements that will improve the sports experience and of course the sound. Here are some recommendations:
-Design: when we talk about running headphones, we have to take into account the comfort and type of design of our headphones. The best headphones for athletes are those with an in-ear design , since they allow complete insertion into the ear canal and guarantee a total seal in it so that the sound is perceived with total clarity. Another option to consider is the use of supra-aural or on-ear running headphones, which sit on the ear and have a very light and portable design. Either by cable or bluetooth, they connect quickly to the smartphone or Hi-Res player. As a general rule, these types of headphones do not integrate sweat resistance protocols as is the case with in-ears, but their transport and intuitive controls make them a very interesting alternative for practicing sports. Less recommendable but equally valid are over-ear headphones , which envelop the entire ear with their cups but are aimed at listening to music at home or in quieter environments. Its robust construction and dedicated components mean that its weight is higher and therefore not very useful for exercising. However, if you opt for over-ear headphones for sports, it is best that you opt for bluetooth headphones that are more suitable for this use.
-Bluetooth connection: according to our user experience, the best headphones for running are those that incorporate Bluetooth connectivity or are 100% wireless -true wireless- because they facilitate placement in the ear and are designed to prevent falls, annoying pulls caused by the cable , and offer the option of controlling the headphones via the capsules or the remote control. To ensure sound quality, it is recommended to buy running headphones with advanced bluetooth versions like 5.0 or higher. The bluetooth version is important to get a better energy efficiency of the headphones and a longer range of transmission distance. Regarding quality, it is interesting to opt for the use of high-resolution codecs such as aptX , aptX HD or LDAC if the sound source allows it, as well as the use of premium version streaming platforms with better sound quality and access to an almost infinite music catalog. Of course, it is convenient to look for a model that exceeds a range of at least 5 hours to ensure that our music does not stop.
-IPX protocols: the most important thing when purchasing running headphones is the incorporation of protocols that are resistant to sweat, humidity and water, or dust. First of all, it is very important that they are resistant to sweat because they will be in contact with the skin at all times and poor treatment of the materials can cause the headphones to deteriorate. On the other hand, and in order to guarantee the safety of our headphones, we must look at the IP protocol and its level, which is in charge of measuring the resistance to water in case they suffer splashes or face rain and dust from a device, essential if we go for a run in the city, the mountains or the beach.
-Grip: Are there running headphones that don't fall off? The answer is yes. The first thing to consider is the grip system. As a general rule, sports bluetooth headphones have hooks that attach to the ear and allow full movement so that the headphones do not slip out of the ear or fall out while we train. We can also choose wireless headphones with a neckband design, which have a "collar" in their structure that is placed behind the neck and houses the controls and the battery in this same support. If you opt for true wireless headphones for sports, it is important that you choose foam pads as they are moldable when inserted into the ear and are very suitable for sports given their ergonomics and musical impact.
-Microphone for calls: it is usual that part of the choice of headphones for running is determined by the incorporation of a microphone to make calls while you go running. Stay connected through headphones without having to take your smartphone out of your pocket. It is also useful to use voice assistants such as OK Google, Amazon Alexa or Apple's Siri to be able to manage aspects such as changing tracks, turning up the volume or searching for specific information.
-Sound profile: although it is interesting to take into account all the considerations mentioned above, the most important thing when we opt for sports headphones is that they sound good . There are many benefits of listening to music during training, but to do it properly, it is necessary to try different models and choose the one that best suits our musical tastes. Most users who use running headphones opt for a profile with punchy bass for powerful genres such as electronic, dance or rock. However, it is best to opt for a balanced profile that stands out for its versatility and versatility, and allows us to broaden the horizon beyond music, for example, to listen to podcasts or similar sound content.
